For your something borrowed, you could borrow jewelry from one of the females in your family. If you are doing the garter toss, then yes, you could do a blue garter; however, if you are not maybe you could do blue shoes; that is what I am doing. I am wearing Electra shoes in China blue from Nina.

do you Americans complete the whole poem?

“something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue and a silver sixpence in her shoe.”

my Fiance was a gorgeous geeky child – he collected coins, and i will be adhering one from his collection – a 100 year old George V silver sixpence – in my shoe on the day we wed (the left one, apparently, according to grandmother, is the ‘lucky’ shoe)

@blossom: yes we complete the entire poem. A lot of us trade the sixpence for a penny though.

You can “borrow” anything – jewelry, hairpiece, veil, crinline, clutch- anything you want to have as a part of your wedding outfit.

Ditto with the blue. You could also tuck a blue hat into the stem of your bouquet.
